Resumen

RIESGO COSME, Yalili de la Caridad; COSTA MONTANE, Daniel Marino; RODRIGUEZ FERNANDEZ, Silvia del Carmen  y  CRESPO MAFRAN, María Isabel. Oral health in schoolchildren of "30 de Noviembre" day boarding school. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.4, pp.442-446. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out with the purpose of determining the oral health in 98 schoolchildren between 5-6 years of age at "30 de Noviembre" Primary School of Santiago de Cuba, from January to December 2007. Both, physical intraoral and extraoral examination and the review of each medical record of the pupils provided the necessary information in this respect, which was then processed with the program Epi Info 6.0 and summarized by means of indexes and percentages. Results revealed that poor oral health could be attributed to periodontitis, that in both teethings (deciduous and permanent) the component of filled teeth prevailed and schoolchildren should receive the benefits of the periodontics, orthodontics and conservative treatment in that order.

Palabras clave : child; schoolchild; oral health; periodontitis; orthodontics; health promotion.
